Mark 5:25-28-And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole (Luke 8:43-48 Matthew 9:20-22).
The woman with medical issues of “blood” clearly defines while demonstrating how to obtain and receive the healing power of God through the grace of Jesus Christ His Son, and through faith that produces wholeness.
Faith is attainable and received, but only by way of Jesus. Thusly, all that have great faith, without a smidgeon of doubt held deep within their hearts, will in fact experience the Sovereign power of healing that is in Jesus Christ’ name.
Trusting in the LORD, and allowing ourselves to surrender to His will, while adhering to His Word, which in essence is His voice, makes us fully whole.
- TRUST— The ability to establish a full accord of yielding and acknowledging that CHRIST exists, and that by believing…we will survive and maintain the cord of LIFE, which abides in Christ, our Vine.
The woman with the medical issue of blood went in search for Jesus. She pressed through the massive crowds and overcame the blaring obstacles in her path. She pushed forward through the crowd and wouldn’t accept “no” for an answer. She fought the good fight of faith, while she kept her focus on Jesus. She demonstrated her faith, trust and confidence in Jesus by her sheer tenacity, or to say her strong determination. And so, she was healed! This was after many years with the blood issues, she was made whole by her faith! Amen!
- FAITH– Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). For we walk by Faith not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
These key characters and individuals in the Holy Bible are there for us to understand and learn from the inspired Word by the LORD. This woman never gave up and everyday went searching and looking for Jesus. She knew if she found Him, she had only to “touch His hem” and she would be made whole. She didn’t sit around saying, “woe is me” nor did she wait for Jesus to find her. Nope. She went in search of Him, she believed, she trusted, and was made whole.
Hebrews 4:12 States that “the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Faith, Trust and the LORD, go hand-in-hand.
The heart is love. Love is the heart. And God is the heart of Love.
Trust Him, Seek Him, Love Him…and have faith that you will be made whole.
Listen to His voice through the Word. And keep believing. He is real, and He loves us as no other can or ever will. This is the greatest love we will ever know (John 3:16).
“Father, thank You for Your miracles, Your power, and Your Word, I believe in You and You alone, I surrender to You fully and completely, help me to shine Your light from within and do Your bidding and be a loyal and humble servant, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
